Raleigh, N.C. and Newport Beach, CA, USA GateTel Inc., a developer and manufacturer of wireless terminals, is expanding its longstanding partnership with Telit Wireless Solutions into the North American market. This follows the opening of GateTel’s new regional offices in Newport Beach, California.

Telit is a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) products and services.  Telit and GateTel have been partners for over 10 years, and are now co-operating as GateTel plans to manufacture  in California fully certified terminals for the original equipment manufacture (OEM) market, based solely on Telit modules.

GateTel’s North America production is to start with three cellular terminals (pictured below) for the top three wireless networks, all supporting GNSS: the GT-HE910-NAG, the GT-DE910-S and the GT-DE910-V. The new products enable connectivity to the respective U.S. mobile network operators. Telit is collaborating closely with GateTel to ensure the terminals are fully network-approved when they arrive in the market later this year.

The three new terminals are based on Telit’s xE910 family products. The GT-HE910-NAG is based on the HE910-NAG HSPA+ module capable of 14.4 Mbps downlink and 5.7 Mbps uplink data rates; plus the SL869 GPS+GLONASS GNSS receiver module. The GT-DE910-S and GT-DE910-V are based on the DE910-DUAL 1xEV-DO Rev.A module. The DE910-DUAL is capable of 3.1 Mbps downlink and 1.8 Mps uplink data rates; and is equipped with an embedded GPS+GLONASS GNSS receiver, which will be used by GateTel for the positioning functionality in these two EV-DO terminals.

The xE910 Unified Form Factor family is comprised of pin-to-pin compatible devices in Telit’s broadest range of cellular air interfaces and band combinations using the concept ‘design once and deploy globally’. A one-time design and integration effort enables worldwide or regional device re-use across different data rates and wireless technologies with air interfaces in GSM/GPRS, UMTS/HSPA+, 1xRTT, EV-DO, and LTE. The xE910 family fully preserves the core design of the application or device from launch to phase-out with family modules packaged in a common 28.2×28.2 mm LGA footprint; and is ideally suited for compact-sized solutions for mid- to high-volume applications.

The SL869 offers class leading multi-constellation GNSS functionality. Dead-reckoning and TRAIM support can additionally provide an integrated, cost-effective solutions for navigation, tracking and timing applications. The Jupiter SL869 offers seamless integration with Telit cellular modules.

“It is very rewarding to help GateTel, a Telit customer since day one, to expand into North America,” said Mike Ueland, senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America. “GateTel has been a loyal Telit customer working with us in Europe, the Middle East and now North America.”

“The last couple of years have seen an increase in demand for our terminal products,” said David Ezer, CEO of GateTel, Inc. “North America is a market where many concepts and ideas are tried. We are excited to offer a complete line of M2M terminals in the States to our new customers.”

Ten years on, leveraging a broad portfolio of hardware in cellular, short range and positioning technologies complemented by services and connectivity from m2mAIR, Telit is aiming to be M2M’s ‘One Stop Shop’ for system integrators.
